U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims To Hold Hearing at Syracuse University College of Law

http://law.syr.edu/uploads/images/news-image/CAVC_seal_-_resize.jpgThe United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims will hold an appellate hearing at Syracuse University College of Law on Wednesday, September 28th from 9:30 AM to 12 PM in Dineen Hall. The hearing is free and open to the public.

The case to be argued is Cornell v. McDonald. This will be the first time the Court will be held in Syracuse.

The Court has exclusive jurisdiction over decisions of the Board of Veterans' Appeals (Board or BVA). The Court reviews Board decisions appealed by claimants who believe the Board erred in its decision. The Court's review of Board decisions is based on the record before the agency and arguments of the parties, which are presented in a written brief, with oral argument generally held only in cases presenting new legal issues. 

“Having the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims hold a hearing at the College of Law offers a unique opportunity for the local community see how this important Court addresses key legal issues our veterans face,” said Yelena Duterte, director of the Syracuse University College of Law Veterans Law Clinic. “This also gives our students the chance to experience proceedings and learn from experienced attorneys.”
